Browster in DeadPool

San Francisco based Browster definitely appears to be dead, as GigaOm reported earlier this week. I have been unable to get a confirmation (or any response) from emails sent to CEO Scott Milener and one of the investors in the company, and the site has been up and down (mostly down) for the last few days.

Browster’s browser plugin let uses preview sites on search results and some other sites without clicking through to them. Our previous coverage is here. We’ve also covered competitor Cooliris.

The fact that everyone connected with the company is being so quiet about this is a little odd, given that the site is down. Based on his LinkedIn profile, Milener is on to his next company, Vieweo. Browser is not mentioned at all.

Browster raised $5.8 million in a Series A round of funding just a year ago, and had closed at least one previous angel round with a number of individuals and funds.

Browster is now in the TechCrunch DeadPool.
